Consuming Linked Data by Humans

  1. 1. Consuming Linked Data by Humans<br />Consuming Linked Data Tutorial<br />International Semantic Web Conference<br />2009<br />
  2. 2. Consuming Linked Data by Humans<br />HTML Browsers<br />Linked Data Browsers<br />Faceted Browsers<br />On-the-fly Mashups<br />Come up with another paradigm and become the next …<br />
  3. 3. HTML Browsers<br />
  4. 4. Links to other URIs<br />
  5. 5. &lt;span rel=&quot;foaf:interest&quot;&gt;<br />&lt;a href=&quot;; property=&quot;dcterms:title&quot;&gt;Database&lt;/a&gt;,<br />&lt;a href=&quot;; property=&quot;dcterms:title&quot;&gt;Data Integration&lt;/a&gt;,<br />&lt;a href=&quot;; property=&quot;dcterms:title&quot;&gt;Semantic Web&lt;/a&gt;,<br />&lt;a href=&quot;; property=&quot;dcterms:title&quot;&gt;Linked Data&lt;/a&gt;,<br />etc.&lt;/span&gt;<br />
  6. 6. HTML Browsers<br />RDF can be serialized in RDFa<br />Have you heard of<br />Yahoo’s Search Monkey<br />Google Rich Snippets?<br />They are consuming RDFa<br />But WHY?<br />
  7. 7. Because there is life beyond ten blue links<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. Google and Yahoo are starting to crawl RDFa!<br />The Semantic Web is a reality!<br />
  10. 10. The Reality<br />Yahoo is crawling data that is in RDFa and Microformats under a specific vocabularies <br />FOAF<br />GoodRelations<br />…<br />Google is crawling RDFa and Microformats that use the Google vocabulary<br />How much of this is Linked Data <br />I don’t know<br />
  11. 11. Linked Data Browsers<br />
  12. 12. Linked Data Browsers<br />Not actually separate browsers. Run inside of HTML browsers<br />View the data that is returned after looking up a URI in tabular form<br />(IMO) UI lacks usability<br />
